Our Dinner Rush

Oh yeah... the Missionaries are coming over at 5 pm.  What, my love? You invited our friends who are new to the area to dinner? Hmmm.  And it's late afternoon?  Good thing I threw on an extra large pot of Everything Chili.  (It has everything that was lying around in my fridge, with beans and meat.)

Church got out at 3pm, home by 3:38 (ish).  SCRAMBLE!!

My wife took over the counters to make a double batch of cornbread.  I fine tuned the Chili.  The kids cleaned.  Well, the kids cleaned like a donkey pulls loads.  They do... but they need prodding and can be very stubborn.

In my rush to find additional food for the table, I decided on salad.  It is primarily spinach, and I felt like a passion fruit vinaigrette.  Here it is:

Passion Fruit Vinaigrette
   3 TBL frozen passion fruit juice concentrate, thawed
   3 TBL minced shallot (substitute with mix of onion/garlic - more O than G)
   4 tsp. Sherry wine vinegar (Or other vinegar, I guess)
   1 tsp. Dijon mustard (too much will overpower)
   1 tsp. whole coriander seeds, coarsely cracked (sub: 1/2 mint, 1/2 parsley)
   3 TBL olive oil

I got the recipe here:

Nice.  Very nice.

Oh shoot! the kids need to clean the guest/kids bathroom.  Bye.
